Current Position: Assistant Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Iowa State University
Brief bio: I teach courses on family communication, advanced qualitative methods, and mixed methods. My research program reflects community-based studies, health-focused intervention programming, and Black samples. I draw on this skill base to study two areas: (a) marriage and intimate relationships and (b) type-2 diabetes prevention and management.
Penn State University Demography Program: I have very fond memories of my years in training in the Demography program. All of the resources that were available (e.g., highly-productive faculty, well-designed courses, library, statistical and methodological support, diverse graduate student body) helped me to be the scholar that I am today. It was a first-rate educational experience!
